Evaluating Connectivity in Waterloo Region – Phase 2 Findings

Anti-Poverty Strategies, Collective Impact, Mental Health & Addictions, Research & Evaluation

WHAT IS CONNECTIVITY?

Connectivity is the name of the Waterloo Region “Situation Tables”, which bring police, health and social service agencies together at a weekly meeting to collaboratively and proactively address situations of acutely elevated risk in the community.

In January 2014, the Waterloo Regional Police Service (WRPS) in partnership with Langs Community Health Centre implemented a Situation Table in Cambridge. In partnership with Carizon Family and Community Services, a second Situation Table became operational in Kitchener in October 2014.

Connectivity is about building stronger connections across workers in the local justice, health and social service sectors in order to connect community members in situations of acutely elevated risk to the help they need more quickly.

TNC was contracted by United Way KFL&A to help them develop an Action Plan to End Youth Homelessness in Kingston and Area. This project was part of a national program called Mobilizing Local Capacity to End Youth Homelessness (MLC), being led by Eva’s Initiatives, the National Learning Community on Youth Homelessness, the Canadian Housing and Renewal Association, and the Catherine Donnelly Foundation. I was proud to work alongside United Way KFL&A on this project. To read the Draft Action Plan and learn about our process, click here!
